From my Grandfather’s own kitchen creations. Uses lots of extracts and take time to prepare, but well worth it!!!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon rum flavored extract
  • 1 teaspoon orange extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon lemon extract
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup apricot brandy
  • 1 cup butter
  • 3 cups white sugar

  2. 2 Combine the sour cream, rum flavoring, orange extract, almond extract, lemon extract, vanilla extract and apricot brandy. Set aside.

Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the sour cream and flavorings mixture, stirring just until incorporated.
